Paleo Fruit Tart (Grain/Gluten-Free, Vegan, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free)

Happy almost Independence Day! My favorite part of any holiday is the anticipation and excitement surrounding it. Planning the celebrations, Pinterest-ing (ALWAYS), decoration, and, of course, the food. I mean, that’s what holidays are all about, right? The delicious foods that define holidays – the kind of foods that makes for lasting memories and traditions that carry on…

Paleo Pecan Pie Bites (Grain/Gluten Free)

I think pecans are my favorite type of nut. I know, I know, that is quite a bold statement to make. I mean, what about macadamia? Pistachio? The ever-so-versatile almond? But, in my opinion, nothing beats a nicely toasted pecan. Yes, you can quote me on that. I don’t think I ever even tried a…

Paleo Pizza Frittata

A few weeks ago, I threw a baby shower for my sister in New York. I love love LOVED putting together this adorable baby shower that was pretty much straight out of Compton Pinterest. And, being the super aunt-to-be that I am, I also prepared most of the food we served. This, of course, meant that…

Paleo Lemon Chia Loaf (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free)

I’ve recently become obsessed with lemon flavored snacks. I used to think that I didn’t like lemony flavors because they tend to taste too artificial (I’m looking at you, lemon Starburst), but ever since I tried this amazing meyer lemon yogurt from a local company, I’ve become a changed woman. Now it’s all about lemon yogurt, lemon ice cream, lemon…

Paleo Plantain Pancakes (with spinach!)

Farm Hill – Healthy Lunch, Delivered

Before I followed my calling for paleo baking, I spent my days as an investment banker. This meant that all of my weekday meals were consumed in front of my multiple computer monitors at my desk. While I tried to pack most of my lunches, some days I had to roam the streets of the…

Kale Carrot Spiced Latkes (gluten-free)

We held a Hanukkah candle lighting celebration last Sunday with our friends. It was a wonderful evening of good friends and an overabundance of food. For me, parties and gatherings are all about the food. I mean, isn’t that the whole point? So, when I plan parties I tend to obsess over the menu –…
